Brittany is an Aerospace Engineer at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center who earned her undergraduate degree from Tuskegee University and a Masters from Johns Hopkins University.  Her husband LaVelle is a Health Occupational Therapist who has degrees from Howard University and the University of Toledo.  This dynamic duo, who now call Maryland home, tied the knot on September 3, 2017 in Stone Mountain, GA.

The theme for their wedding was “Classy Sassy”.  The bride coordinated lilac and mint colors throughout the day.   There were 12 bridesmaids, 12 groomsmen, 2 flower girls, and 1 ring bearer

How they met:

LaVelle and Brittany met at a mutual friend’s graduation party in May of 2014. The attraction was obvious but neither one of them acted on it due to current situations. In December 2014, they crossed paths at another event of the same mutual friend and realized they had a lot in common. In February 2015, after both recently being single, they decided to hang out as friends. The chemistry was so strong that they’ve been inseparable since!

How he proposed:

In August of 2016, Brittany received a promotional offer to do a Detail at NASA Headquarters (HQ). This was such an unexpected accomplishment for Brittany because NASA HQ was always a mid career goal (for her)! Due to that reasoning, LaVelle took Brittany out to celebrate. Well LaVelle had more up his sleeve because he recreated their first date at National Harbor by turning that celebratory promotion into a proposal! He even went a step further by surprising her with their closest local friends at POV of The W in DC after! Brittany was completely shocked and has been in utter bliss since!
